Cambridge Audio's S525-V2 system turns any song, movie, video game, or TV show into an immersive, room-filling experience. Eyes closed, it's hard to imagine speakers this small can offer such potency. You'll be amazed by the accuracy, detail, and realism from the five tiny satellite speakers that measure less than 6" high and 3" deep. The matching 500-watt subwoofer delivers audiophile-quality bass, so you can experience the visceral impact of big bass drums and baritone saxophones as if the instruments are being played right in front of you. So whether you're looking to maximize your music or movie experience, or add depth to your favorite TV shows and sports, the Minx S525-V2 is ready to fill in the excitement that you've been missing.
The five Minx Min 21 satellite speakers included with this system were carefully designed and tested at Cambridge Audio's London facility by a team fueled with a passion for incredible sound. They completely rewrite the rulebook of what's possible from miniature speakers thanks to BMR (Balanced Mode Radiator) technology. BMR drivers use a flat speaker surface that combines the traditional "pistonic" movement of speaker cones with a "bending-wave" movement to create sound. It's what allows the Minx Min 21s to produce a much wider frequency response than comparably sized speakers. You'll also experience a much broader sound dispersion across your entire room, for the most enveloping sound imaginable. Plus, the compact, acoustically damped cabinets offer extreme rigidity, so you hear pure, clean sound no matter how intense your movies get.
The matching Minx X500 subwoofer uses a 10" forward-firing driver made of a single piece of super strong, aerospace-grade aluminum for amazing punch and attack. It's paired with a passive radiator that adds some serious mid-bass boost. Cambridge Audio's software engineers specially designed the sophisticated Digital Signal Processor (DSP) in this sub, allowing it to pump out sensational bass from such a compact enclosure. You may even be fooled into thinking the X500 is several times its size.
Naturally, you want your speakers to fit into your home, rather than designing your living space around your system. That's why the compact Minx Min 21 satellites can be mounted to your wall, placed on stands, or positioned on a tabletop using optional hardware. You can mix and match by adding more Minx Min 21 or smaller Minx Min 11 speakers to create an even more engaging 7.1-channel system.
Looking for speakers that'll deliver thrilling, edge-of-your-seat surround sound? Choosing a pre-matched speaker system is one way to ensure seamless home theater performance. These systems are made up of speakers that share the same tonal characteristics that means the sound will stay consistent as it moves from speaker to speaker around your room. Most pre-matched systems come with a subwoofer a must-have for high-impact bass.
Nice tonal balance. Sub is a must. handsome and well built.

Minx Satellite Speakers: The Cambridge Audio Minx 525 speaker system includes five matching Cambridge Audio Minx MIN21 satellite speakers. The Cambridge Audio Minx MIN21 satellite speaker provides accuracy, detail, and realism from a compact speaker. Its wide dispersion capabilities make it easy to integrate into any room.
BMR (Balanced Mode Radiator) Technology: The Cambridge Audio Minx MIN21 satellite speaker features dual 2.25" BMR (Balanced Mode Radiator) drivers. The Cambridge Audio BMR drivers utilize patented "bending wave" principles normally seen in advanced flat-panel speakers, combined with piston-movement (backwards and forwards) like in a traditional speaker design. This type of design provides the Minx satellite speaker with a much wider frequency response and deeper and more powerful bass frequencies, plus incredibly spacious sound. The BMR driver design also adds value by delivering a much broader sound dispersion across the entire room, avoiding the typical "sweet spot" pitfall, for a more enveloping sound. The 2.25" BMR (Balanced Mode Radiator) drivers employ a rubber surround for added durability and excursion. Each BMR driver utilizes ultra-compact push-pull neodymium magnets for greater efficiency.
Compact Acoustic Suspension Enclosure: The Cambridge Audio Minx MIN21 satellite speaker is only 3.125" (w) x 6.125" (h) x 3.75" (d). The Minx MIN21 features an acoustic suspension (sealed) cabinet for greater detail and tonal accuracy. The satellite speaker employs an acoustically damped thermo-polymer and extruded aluminum cabinet to prevent distortion caused by resonance and vibration. The Cambridge Audio Minx MIN21 includes a detachable cloth grille. The Minx MIN21 cabinets are available in a high-gloss black (with black cloth grille) or high-gloss white finish (with silver cloth grille). The black and white high-gloss lacquers are finished to the highest standard using paint application techniques developed by premium automotive manufactures. The black and white lacquer finishes are hard to scratch and easy to clean.
Binding Posts: The Cambridge Audio Minx MIN21 satellite speaker is equipped with a pair of binding post terminals. The binding post terminals will accept bare-wire, pin-connectors, and spade-connectors. The terminals are color-coded (black/red) to distinguish between positive and negative. The satellite speaker's binding post terminals can be removed to allow use of banana plugs (single only). The binding post terminals simply pull out of the back of the speaker, which allows access to banana connector inputs.
Mounting Options: The Cambridge Audio Minx MIN21 satellite speakers can be table-top mounted, wall mounted, or placed on a floor-standing speaker stand. The speakers can be positioned vertically or horizontally (based on application and mount-type).
Frequency Response: The Cambridge Audio Minx MIN21 satellite speaker features a 120Hz to 20,000Hz frequency range.
Power Handling: The Cambridge Audio Minx MIN21 satellite speaker can handle 15 to 50 watts (RMS).

Auxiliary Bass Radiator (ABR): The Cambridge Audio X500 powered subwoofer utilizes a down-firing 10" auxiliary bass radiator (ABR) for greater bass response and better efficiency. The ABR design replaces the need for bass ports to eliminate air noise at higher volume levels.
